DO NOT let go of the gnome when in the helicopter. It will fall right through it mad you will not get the achievement unless you go back out and grab it.

There are cheats in L4D2 but in order to use them you need to activate it by starting a map with the map command (mapception) b writing map in developers console (only works on Pc) and then space then pick your desired map and you will be able to use the give command, god command, and the infinite ammo command

Pleasd rate this and hope it helped
